i7 920 mATX build need your thoughts!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so far i have:
-i7 920
-CM Storm Sniper Case (kinda regretting this cause its friggin' huge and now I want the Antec mini p180 because u can remove the middle tray and fit a 5870)

the rest i've been eying:
-640 gb caviar black 50 bucks on the egg
-Antec tp-750 blue 80 after mir (don't really care about the blue led but the normal one has no sale price)
-Asus rampage II gene
-CM 212+ heatsink
-RAM i have no clue prices are high the egg does have OCZ gold 6gb for 114 right now after mir and 10% off
-GPU i think i may just buy a cheap one for now until Ati gets its stock for the 5000 series back in order

Do you think i should jump on the antec truepower new 750watt deal??? wish the corsair 750hx or 650hx was cheaper


what do you think so far???

I just finished my mATX build and will be posting a build log soon. See my system for details. It rips and I'm very happy with the performance so far.
Good Luck.

No, I used the dummy OC feature in the BIOS to push it to 3.3Ghz and I've OC'd the GPU from 576/1242/999 to 675/1455/1152 and its rock solid. I've been playing with E-LEET & Precision but I'm no expert so I'm taking it slow. I think the cores are getting a little hotter than they should on Prime95 & I'm going to re-seat the Noctua. I'd like to get to 4Ghz on air but that might be to ambitious?

I'm running Crysis benchmark @ 1680x1050 on max settings with an average 26fps so I'm pretty happy so far.
